Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The funniest catalog in America. Guaranteed.

Let award-winning comedy troupe Kasper Hauser transport you into the sublime universe that is SkyMaul, where Banana-ganizers and Reality-Canceling Headphones coexist with Crack Pipe Chess Sets and Llamacycles. More than just a catalog parody, SkyMaul explodes with razor-sharp wit, boundless creativity, and a keen eye for the absurd. This smart, edgy satire will earn your laughter again and again.

Review:

"Reading this blurb is a form of inefficiency, because to know that this book is madly funny, full of wild invention, and definitively satirizes one of the most banal and loathsome of all American institutions." George Saunders, author of CivilWarLand in Bad Decline and Pastoralia

Review:

"The D.U.I. Mask really works!" David Foster Wallace

Review:

"Not since the days of Not the New York Times and The Journal of Irreproducible Results has the sly, surprising parody of otherwise ignored cultural detritus seemed so sharp and overdue; not since the days of the actual feral child named Kasper Hauser has humor writing been so nimble, hungry, wiry, and covered with a fine, catlike fur." John Hodgman, author of Areas of My Expertise and contributor to The Daily Show with Jon Stewart

Review:

"SkyMaul provides great reading on a plane, particularly on those long flights, because I usually forget to bring a book. I was disappointed that some of the items were on back order and, I'm informed, may not be available at all." Fred Willard

Review:

"This is the catalog that SHOULD be on every plane! A perfect absurdist comment on just how odd sky shopping truly is! I wish I'd had it on my last flight. Instead, I had to watch The Ice Princess." Nicole Parker, MADtv

Review:

"This is the funniest catalog I've ever read." Joel Stein, LA Times

Synopsis:

From the Japanese "Thank You Toilet" to the Drinking Age Time Zone Watch, Skymaul is a hilarious parody of the in-flight sales catalog. 200+ full-color illustrations.

YoungAmerican, October 30, 2006 (view all comments by YoungAmerican)
The description says parody, but it's more of a social satire. Unbelievable -- only parodies like this that leap to mind are "America: The Book" and "The National Lampoon's High School Yearbook." Really wonderful, especially if you're into edgier humor -- Monty Python's Flying Circus, Mr. Show, that kind of thing.
